High priority updates won't install

After unintentionally re-installing Windows XP on my system (my error trying to set up a VM), I went to the Microsoft update site and it showed 92 high priority updates needed. After starting the process it indicated that they were all downloaded successfully, but after installing I get a window that says "Some updates were not installed". And it lists those that weren't installed. All 92 of them!

I was able to upgrade to IE7 without any problems, but can't get the security updates to install. Can someone help me with this?

Thanks in advance!

Hey alty :) just wanted to add in here, I had the same issues with about 10 installs yesterday :)

This method seems to have done the trick as well.

1) Stop the Automatic Updates service
2) Register Wups2.dll
3) Restart the Automatic Updates service
